I left my living situation and moved all my things out. My roommate is still living there and has all his things in the house. I guess the landlord thought I might try and come in and steal stuff so they changed the locks. Now, I am refusing to pay my rent because, isn't this a form of eviction or something, if I can't get into a place I'm paying for? I just want to know that if my landlord takes us both to court that all the rent will fall on my roommate and not on me. I am no longer living there and moved out, and even though I signed the lease, I can't get in. Does my landlord have the right or obligation to change locks without notification for "safety reasons" for remaining tenants? Also, can I still bring up being locked out if my roommate takes me to small claims court?
